Finally I feel fit to explain y’all how to make a flatlay. It’s one of the most rewarding photography skills for instagram and I’ll show you exectly how to do it!
Tell a story
When I look at your flatlay I should know what you are doing. Are you reading, painting, doing your makeup…. Share it! Take out all the products you are using.
Choose the serfous according to make your products stand out. If your products are light make them pop by using a dark background. If you don’t really want the product to be in the front and center. You can use a light serfous. Opposite this works too of course.
It’s always easiest to chose a flat serfous, even grass, floors… will work.
You can make a minimal flatlay. In this flatlay you will use as little products as possible. Empty spaces are a must to nail this one!
Make every product you are showing visable to get your point across. This is good lighting and a good camera. Honestly the lighting is more important then the camera.
I’ve been using an iPhone 5 to take pictures for a long time. I actually started my blog with my iPhone 5. But I learned to understand lighting and taking picture here are my tips
- No direct sunlight
- No artificial light
- Make your flatlay buy the window
- Different angles
